Pink stays at No.1 for a third week on the Australian single chart, equaling her longest run at the top, May 2001's collaborative effort, "Lady Marmalade", so if she stays one or any more weeks at the top, it'll become her longest running No.1 single in Australia.

Lady GaGa was in the country at the end of last week; start of this week, which has helped push her single "Just Dance" back up one spot to No.2, and her second single joins it in the charts this week. For another week there are NO new entries to the Top 10, just a small shuffling of titles, with Kings of Leon moving up one place to No.5 with "Sex on Fire", Katy Perry's "Hot N' Cold" breaks a three-week-stay at No.7 by moving up one to No.6, and the other one-place-mover comes from MGMT's "Electric Feel", now up to No.9 after two weeks at No.10.

There are two six-place climbers of the week, both becoming the biggest upward-movers. "One Step at a Time" by Jordin Sparks is up to No.12, possibly giving her a third Top 10 single next week. And the third single from The Presets, "Talk Like That" is up to No.39, helped along by a physical release, plus their album is being re-issued as a repackaged CD this coming week.

In December 2006, Jessica Mauboy became a runner-up on Australia Idol , only making the album charts in early 2007 with her collection of songs sung only the show, "The Journey" (No.4, March 2007). Now she debuts with her first solo single at No.13 this week, "Running Back", on downloads alone, (Physical single released Oct 13th) featuring guest vocals by Flo Rida. Her first studio album "Been Waiting" is due by years end.

Clifford Harris celebrated his 28th birthday two weeks ago (25th Sept), but better known on the charts as T.I., his best present was to be No.1 on the U.S. Charts with "Whatever You Like". That song is at No.1 for a sixth week this week, and debuts at No.25 on the Australian charts. It's taken from his sixth album "Paper Trail" which is out next week, and is his second SOLO Top 50 single in Australia, having previously reached No.49 in August 2006 with "Why You Wanna". He has also appeared as guest vocalist on "My Love" (No.3, Nov. 2006) and teamed up with 2Pac and Ashanti on "Pac's Life" (No.34, Dec. 2006).

Right behind T.I. at No.26 is the second single from Lady GaGa, "Poker Face". Her former No.1 single "Just Dance" is back up one place to No.2 this week, and with her promo tour during the past week, her second single has been rush-released, with the CD Single due out at the end of October. The promo tour also helped push her album "The Fame" to it's highest peak of No.11 this week.

Sydney teenage-band Short Stack debut at No.31 with their first single "Shimy a Go Go", which will get more exposure via both their prolific MySpace page, and their upcoming National Tour with Simple Plan during mid-October.

The Jonas Brothers stay put at No.38 with "Burnin' Up" this week, but joining that track on the charts at No.46 is another single from the 'Camp Rock' Soundtrack, "This is Me", a duet between Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato. 'Camp Rock' is the biggest climbing album of the week, up 20 places to No.13 this week (aah school holidays!!).


Link to the ARIA Top 50 Albums: http://www.ariacharts.com.au/pages/charts_display_album.asp?chart=1G50 (updated after 6:30pm AEST)

Kings of Leon spend a second week at the top of the Australian Album charts with their "Only By the Night" set. They do continue to have three albums inside the Top 50 ("Youth and Young Manhood" drops out), and the album has topped the charts in Ireland, New Zealand and England, plus is Top 10 in Switzerland, Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark and in Canada and America it debuted at No.5.

The highest new album comes in at No.4, "Shogun" by Trivium. Their third album "The Crusade" reached No.14 in October 2006, which at the time was their first Top 50 album in this country. Now they have surpassed that, and also scored a Top 5 album in the process.

Shannon Noll was the runner-up of the first Australian Idol, but he has out-charted the Idol-winner Guy Sebastian with more singles and higher placed albums. Guy has had a No.1, No.2, No.3 and No.4 album, whilst Shannon has had two No.1, a No.3 and now a No.7 with his Greatest Hits collection entitled "No Turning Back: The Story So Far", which features his current single "Summertime" which has peaked at No.54 so far.
22-Feb-04*HP-01*WI-39 - That's What I'm Talking About (4 weeks at No.1)
31-Oct-05*HP-01*WI-53 - Lift (1 week at No.1)
30-Sep-07*HP-03*WI-15 - Turn it Up
06-Oct-08*HP-07*WI-01* - No Turning Back: The Story So Far

California's Cold War Kids score their first Top 50 album in Australia with "Loyalty to Loyalty" coming in at No.20. Their previous album from 2007 was called "Robbers and Cowards". Entering right behind at No.21 is the second album for James Morrison, entitled "Song for You, Truths for Me", it's the follow-up to his "Undiscovered" album which hit No.17, and debuted on the charts exactly two years ago this week.

It's been three years since Ben Folds has graced out charts, and this week he has a new entry at No.25, which is called "Way to Normal", his seventh studio album, but sixth to chart in Australia. His previous efforts were...
21-July-96*HP-37*WI-05 - Ben Folds Five
12-Apr-98*HP-08*WI-32 - Whatever and Ever Amen
09-May-99*HP-05*WI-06 - The Unauthorized Biography of Reinhold Messner
23-Sep-01*HP-18*WI-05 - Rockin' the Suburbs
24-Apr-05*HP-09*WI-04 - Songs for Silverman
06-Oct-08*HP-25*WI-01*- Way to Normal

Right behind Ben Folds is another new entry, by Australian rockers End of Fashion, who takes their second album "Book of Lies" in at No.26. Their first album was the No.3 self-titled set from September 2005.

Pink Floyd guitarist and vocalist David Gilmour enters that charts for the first time in two years with a live set which was released in five different versions, entitled "Live in Gdansk". It was recorded in the shipyards of the Baltic town with the Baltic Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra. His last charting album was the No.23 album "On an Island" (April 2006), which many of the tracks on this new album are taken from.

Has "Warwick Avenue" digital and radio airplay single been cancelled?
great to see Taylor Swift getting releases in aus, with great succes in usa but i think it will be ignored in here like many america female country singlers.

shannon noll is struggling to stay in the charts i doubt his next album will reach top 10.
btw what happened to guy sebastion? the only active idol i see is ricki lee (jessica mouboy's song sucks in my opinion)
Hello Colinda?

Did u find the "Disturbia" physical single??
I still listened to the show but i did not get to write in the forum. A great chart, Shame there were no re entries but lots of New ones. Was very dissapointed to see 2 correct predictions. Like to aim for 4 next week. Will post next predictions from Wed-sat.
yes Brandon, i did buy it but was very hesitant because the trasklisting was not very attractive...
The physical single should have remixes.

Ebay and amazon.com have remix singles, or import singles.

what were No.s 41-50?
i preferr singles with b-sides or remixes over the live/acoustic or instrumental =]

where did DJ Teddy Z drop to in the top 100?
just wanted to know...
As I've mentioned before, I don't get the entire Top 100 information until Tuesday night when the ARIA Report is sent to me via email.

ChartBoi sometimes get's them, so maybe he can answer that question. Otherwise I will answer it and other earlier non-Top 50 answers on Tuesday night.
since it dropped out does it join the list with the highest drops?
sorry colinda had to say this
but 'so what'
Shake It by Metro Station was performed on Idol tonight so it should make it into the top 5 next week as they are out in Oz.
Im a major Britney Fan and deos anybody know anything about Radar's chart history, like it's peak, how long it's beeni n the top 100 for?. Im waiting for itto crack the otp 50
One of the Idol contestants also sang Closer by Ne-yo on tonights show so that might score another week in the top 10 next week.

Also another contestant said he'll be singing Sex On Fire on next weeks rock show so that should benefit from that.

Looks like Kid Rock might be sliding down regularly from now on. I think people are starting to get a bit sick of that song. I've noticed it's starting to fall on the Itunes chart.
is anyone sure if Womanizer will be released on iTunes Oct 7 as is stated for this wks digital release, or Oct 8 as Wikipedia states...??
i think it is Oct 7 released world wide at the same time but itll be oct 8 in some countries bcuz of time difference

i think radars peak is 52-55 but i doubt it will crack 50 as it has fallen to 70s in itunes and womanizer is taking over

Womanizer is now available on iTunes!!! lets make it no.1 guys!
Does anyone know if music VIDEO downloads for singles count towards the weekly singles chart in Oz or is it just regular single downloads?
Hi. I read this site religiously, being a very avid chart and cd sales follower. Only now felt the inclination to join to clarify a few things. Bullion you point out Shannon Noll having a higher chart position for albums than Guy Sebastian, but that doesn't tell the whole story. I don't dispute Shannon's singles history. Pretty amazing record. Something he does not unfortunately seem to be maintaining now though, with his last 2 singles debuting at #26 and #54. Gone are the heady days of instant hits for Shannon Noll.

But your take on the album success is slightly off the mark in my opinion. The only album Shannon has outsold Guy with is with their second albums. Guy outsold Shannon with his first album. He actually only failed by 10,000 albums from achieving 7xP. There is no denying Shannon's 2nd album performed way better than Guy's. Guy did not reach #1 because he was up against Robbie Williams. Hard to get #1, even with around 21,000 sales in your 1st week when you are up against that sort of opposition. Beautiful Life went on to sell in excess of 100,000, but of course nowhere near Shannon's 3 P. But if you look closely at the record for their 3rd albums you will see something quite interesting. Both accredited Platinum, and Guy's verified as actually selling very, very close to the actual Platinum accreditation it received. Shannon on the other hand went Platinum before actually reaching Gold sales, and finished on the Highest Selling Album Charts for 2007 below 2 albums which were only accredited Gold. Turn It Up finished the year at #58, below Led Zeppelin's Mothership at #50 and Kelly Clarkson's My December at #53. Both only gold accredited albums, but selling more than Shannon's Platinum one. Screams false Platinum to me. Interesting with the 1st and second singles of their 3rd albums, Guy outperformed both in the charts and in sales. Guy's Taller Stronger Better, highest position #3, 5 weeks in Top 10, 13 weeks in Top 50, Gold Accredited. Elevator love, highest position #11, 9 weeks in Top 20, 15 weeks in Top 50, Gold Accredited. Shannon's Loud, highest position #3, 1 week in Top 10, 10 Weeks in Top 50, no accreditation. In Pieces, highest position #26, 5 weeks in Top 50, no accreditation.

4th albums are very interesting. The Memphis Album sold in excess of 100,000 in its first 7 weeks and went on to become 2XP in its 10th week, and is one of only 3 Australian albums to achieve more than Platinum accreditation this last Aria year. Hence its inclusion in the nominations for Highest Selling Album. Delta is certainly going to be the winner of that but Guy is no lower than the third highest seller. Which actually makes him the highest selling Australian Male this Aria year. The two in front are female artists. And before anyone mentions the words covers xmas album, it is worth noting it is the only covers album released near xmas last year that went more than Platinum, and the only one which stayed in the charts for 11 weeks post Xmas.

Shannon's 4th album debuted on the charts this week at #7. Given some of the albums above him I would not be surprised if it sold no more than 4,000 copies, and that is with a special addition release as well. Both counting towards the one chart position. It will take a long time to come anywhere near Guy's 4th album, and my guess is it never will.

And colindacascadaho, you ask where Guy is. Well he of course released one of the highest sellers last year, a soul covers album recorded in Memphis with some of the original band members and even one of the original songwriters of some of the most famous Memphis soul classics ever. A song Guy wrote was also used as the anthem for World Youth Day and was downloaded in the hundreds of thousands from the WYD site, and was played and sung in celebrations which reached millions around the world.

Last week he performed a duet with Olivia Newton-John at the Sydney State Theatre, and he is currently performing in the Legacy concerts around Australia with the Army Band. Earlier this year he was on stage with an amazing band. Some real soul legends were members of it. Steve Cropper, and Donald "Duck" Dunn to name two. They came downunder to be part of Guy's backing band on his tour because in their own words he "blew their socks off" when he recorded with them in Memphis last year. They have not finished with Guy yet either. The Memphis Album is being released early next year in the USA. Guy has also written some stuff with Steve for his next originals album, and the band wants to perform with him in the States. Steve can't stop talking about Guy either. So many interviews he has been doing lately for another album he was involved in, Guy's name just pops right up. The last time a few weeks ago Steve referred to him as one of the greatest singer/guitar players he has ever worked with. Now that coming from a legend is pretty amazing praise.

Anyway as you say Ricki is more visible. Mainly because she is on the radio and in that strange part she plays on idol as a totally unnecessary third wheel. But look at her album chart history and you see the real picture. Singles don't make a lot of money. Albums and concerts do. Ricki has only spent 4 weeks total in the Top 50 with albums, highest position #30. While both eventually were accredited Gold, what is the bet Ricki would trade every bit of radio play she has had in the last few years for Guy's 10 Platinum album accreditations and actual sales of around 800,000 albums. Not singles and albums. Albums alone. My guess is she would do it in a heartbeat.

Guy and Shannon are about to attempt the overseas market. Shannon is reprising his role in The War Of The Worlds, this time on the UK tour and releasing an album there. Guy is releasing an album in the States with the best soul band in music history standing beside him. May the best man win

Anyway as this post will most likely go down like a lead balloon I will bid you farewell. Happy chart following.

Here's some questions I pose to you all?

1) What song will eventually knock Pink off the top and why and when?

2) Do you think Katy Perry will manage a top 5 peak with Hot n Cold?

3) Do you think Jordin Sparks will score a 3rd top 10 hit?

4) Can the Ting Tings score a new peak in the coming weeks?

5) Will T.I. have his first Aussie hit (not including My Love)?

I look forward to reading ur comments and opinions.
I'll answer 1st:

1) What song will eventually knock Pink off the top and why and when?

I think Pink will secure the top spot for the rest of October as she will be in the country performing at the Arias and all. As for what song will replace her, I really have no idea as no song is really showing much potential. Womanizer will crack the top 10, possably top 5 but I don't see it good enough to get #1. Perhaps T.I could be another Flo Rida in the coming weeks. His single is sitting in the top 20 digital chart. With a bit of premotion the song could be a hit cos it is pretty catchy.

2) Do you think Katy Perry will manage a top 5 peak with Hot n Cold?

I think Katy's chances of the top 5 are becomming less and less from now on as she is declining on the digital chart. She was #2 last week but this week she has fallen to #5. So I believe Hot n Cold wont crack the top 5.

3) Do you think Jordin Sparks will score a 3rd top 10 hit?

Yes, Jordin should score a third top 10 hit. It's bulleted up the charts the past few weeks and I think it'll knock Rihanna or Ne-yo out of there in the next 2 weeks. Her peak might not be as good as her previous 2 singles but she should peak atleast at #10.

4) Can the Ting Tings score a new peak in the coming weeks?

I hope the Ting Tings move up. I believe this would be there last week to do so as they've been in the country and the single is available on both digital and physical formats. I believe it deserves a top 10 peak but only time will tell.

5) Will T.I. have his first Aussie hit (not including My Love)?

Yes I believe this song will be another Low or Crank That. His previous singles have flopped in Oz and this debuted at #25 on digital sales alone. With a bit of premotion this could go far. This is also the current #1 on Billboard which shows there is signs for this to be a hit. This is the first single of his I've actually liked so I hope it moves up.
I agree with Kacy. Guy Sebastian has had more success (if only limited) overseas than Shannon Noll so far anyway. He's had two top 5 songs in New Zealand, and two top 2 songs in Malaysia from "Just as I Am", while Shannon only managed a top 40 peak in New Zealand with "That's What I'm Talking About", and a top 10 single ("What About Me?"). I'm not saying one's better than the other, it's just evident Guy Sebastian has been more successful and sold more copies than Shannon Noll, although I do like Guy more. Shannon Noll's only stand-out song(s) to me has(ve) been "What About Me?", and maybe "Lift". Guy's had more stand-out songs to me: "Angels Brought Me Here", "All I Need is You", "Out with My Baby", "Oh Oh", and "Elevator Love" are all great songs. But that's just my opinion
(Although they both did "Rise Up", which I still like.)

And as for Jack's questions, I hope the Ting Tings can score a new peak, although they might not. I seriously thought "Great DJ" would go top 50, but it hasn't yet, and it's fallen out of the top 100 on iTunes, so it's obviously not going to. I think personally it's a better song than "That's Not My Name". I've heard so many people say "what is this retarded song?" in regards to "That's Not My Name", so I beg the question, who is still buying it?

As for T.I., he's had alot of success in America; his last two studio albums ("King" and "T.I. vs. T.I.P.") both went to #1, as did "Whatever You Like", which is still #1 on the Hot 100 there if I'm not mistaken. He's really had limited success worldwide however.

And I really hope "Sex on Fire" will knock "So What" out of the top spot. I like both songs, but I've been really addicted to Kings of Leon's lead single lately.

And on Katy Perry, and Jordin Sparks, I wouldn't be surprised if they can both (respectively) pull off a top 5 and a top 10.

Finally, on Britney Spears, what's all the hype for? It's really unusual. I only just heard "Womanizer" today, and I'll say now, it's not as good as "Gimme More" or "Piece of Me". It might grow on me, but it just doesn't really have an upbeat hook that you can catch onto. But that's just me.

P.S. I can't wait for "4:13 Dream" by the Cure to come out. I read someone saying it would be guaranteed a #1 debut due to recent physical sales of the 4 singles and the EP, "Hypnagogic States". I don't think so, but I hope it does better than their 2004 self-titled effort, which only just managed to go top 30 here, and top 10 in the UK and U.S.
1 - Pink will stay No.1 until the end of October hopefully leaving the options open for these songs i predict will be No.1 by the end of the year:
- Im Yours ( it will be No.1 after Pink for only a week)
- Running Back (after Mraz) 3 weeks at #1
- Whatever you like 2 weeks at No.1 after Mauboy
- Im Not Over ( No.1 for rest of year) after TI

2 - I think it will peak at about 4 by the end of the month

3 - One step at a time will have its peak at about 8-5 by the end of October.

4 - Ting Tings will be about 12 next week. I think their peak will be about 10-7

5 - I think he will. The song isnt that great, but he made it in the US, So anythings possible.

Will post predictions Friday
Doesn anyone know what position Soul Sound by Sugababes peaked on. Im looking for either Singles chart, or hitseekers chart. I can't find it but i know it was released as a cd single cuz i have it lol. Please help me
in my opinion
1) as many have said, P!nk will remain at number 1 until the ARIA hype is gone and sells move towards the new album. But she might be on n off swoping places with Lady Gaga. These two weeks will be last chance for Lady Gaga to retain no.1 as attention is swifting to "Poker Face". I think the new number 1 will be Jason Mraz since nothing new is promising enough. Then Britney takes over. I know many people dislike her or the song, but as long as people hate it, other people will like it then the buzz about it will increase, she will probably hit no.1 when the 2 versions of the physical single is in-stores.

2) Although the digital sales has lowered, the video has just been freshly released, if a physical release is to occur by the end of the month it will secure a top 5

3)Like her previous 2 singles, physical sales is very strong for Jordin Sparks, even though she is declining in itunes slightly, she will eventually at least hit #10 as there are many old songs in the top 10.

4)I personally love the song, this song is top 10 material but lack of physical sales is stopping it, it will diefinatly have a higher peak, but top 10 or not. the more annoying a song is, the more attention it gets (crank that, psycho teddy, hollaback girl).

5) T.I. will have his first top 15 hit in a few weeks based on strong downloads, but the genre of the song will not give as much spins on radio. i think Live Your Life will be a bigger hit as it features Rihanna.
Jack, you're a good man as you've got everyone focusing on someone other than Ms. Spears even if she does feature in some of the answers it's good to get a discussion happening. I love your work my friend.

My answers.

1. I think Jason Mraz has potential to be the next #1, however I think Pink is strong enough to drop off and then re-gain the top spot again. So Jason Mraz & Pink will battle the #1 spot over the coming weeks. After that I think Britney might have a chance only because people will be over Pink & Jason Mraz. However Britney usually debuts high and falls fairly quickly so she might only have a week at the top and then fall. I guess we'll find out once her physical is released.

2. Hot n Cold could have a chance to peak in the top 5 once it's physically released. It could even go #1 as I can't really see a stand out song for the #1 position in the coming weeks. However, I think once it's physically released most people will be over it. I predict it will go to #3.

3. Jordin will continue to rise and I hope it does because I rate this chick. I hope she peaks somewhere in the top 5. I'll be very surprised if she doesn't peak in the top 10. Her chart run has been bulleting each week, similar to that of I'm Yours which bulleted it's way until it got to top 10. I predict it will go to #4.

4. The Ting Tings song is good but gets annoying I think. I think it will peak at #11 and just miss the top 10. I was surprised it didn't rise last week. But I don't see it making the top 10 as I feel people are over the song.

5. T.I. will rise but I agree with Colin...dah the genre of music isn't supported on radio. If he comes out to premote the single than it could benefit but otherwise I think it will chart similar to Kiss Kiss and Love In This club where it will make the top 10 for a week or 2 and hang around the teens due to it's catchiness. I think the song with Rihanna will be a bigger hit also due to the fact she features in it.
1. Britney will be the next #1 after Pink. Britney will be #1 once her physical single is released. Jason Mraz or Kings Of Leon have a slight chance but both have physical and digital releases so I think both will miss out on the top spot.

2. Katy Perry will peak somewhere in the top 5 once her physical is released. I think she will go as high as #2. She will fall short of the #1 spot.

3. Jordin Sparks will rise to about #5. I think if it was going to be any bigger it would of been in the top 10 already.

4. Ting Tings will rise this week but I agree will miss the top 10. This week will be it's highest peak. #13 I say.

5. T.I. Will miss the top 10 too. I think he will make the top 20 but I don't expect it to be that big of a song. Australians don't like Rap. #17 will be where he peaks around.
Can anyone help me as I'm getting a little confused.

What songs in the current top 50 are charting on ONE format only? (Either digital OR physical)

Thanks for your help.
I personally think theres several songs over the coming weeks that could reach the top to be honest. Jason Mraz is the biggest threat at the moment but i reckon Jessica Mauboy stands a chance, as does Britney (its already #1 on itunes in the US), Nickelback(its already exploding on radio) and TI/Rihanna (breaks the US record for biggest digital 1st week sales!-334,000). If not #1, there'll all be top 3/5 IMO.

I wonder if the Idol Winner will do it later this year as well? Natalie failed last year. Anyone know who's the favourite to win?

I reckon Pink is safe for a few more weeks though.
Dottie asked...where did DJ Teddy Z drop to in the top 100?
just wanted to know...

It dropped from No.23 to No.67 this week.
Here's my prediction this week...

1 So what - P!nk
2 Just dance - Lady Gaga
3 I'm yours - Jason Mraz
4 Sex on fire - Kings of Leon
5 Hot n cold - Katy Perry
6 Electric feel - MGMT
7 Shake it - Metro Station
8 All summer long - Kid Rock
9 Running back - Jessica Mauboy
10 Disturbia - Rihanna
11 Womanizer - Britney Spears
12 Closer - Ne*Yo
13 One step at a time
14 Thats not my name - Ting Tings
15 Gotta be somebody - Nickelback
16 7 things - Miley Cyrus
17 Use somebody - Kings of Leon
18 Dance wiv me - Dizzee Rascal
19 Forever - Chris Brown
20 When i grow up - Pussycat Dolls
My top 20 predictions.

1. So What
2. I'm Yours
3. Just Dance
4. Sex On Fire
5. Shake It
6. All Summer Long
7. Hot n Cold
8. Electric Feel
9. Disturbia
10. Running Back

11. One Step At A Time
12. Closer
13. That's Not My Name
14. 7 Things
15. Dance Wiv Me
16. Womanizer
17. When I Grow Up
18. Forever
19. Gotta Be Somebody
20. Cry For You
Pink will be #1 for another week until Kings Of Leon take over. Pink will regain the top spot the following week as she will be in Oz and performing at the Arias. Britney will replace her the following week for no more than 2 weeks then The Pussycat Dolls will score a 2nd #1 hit with their single as it's seems to be getting alot of positve reviews and airplay. PCD's will be #1 until the Idol song is released. I imagine after Idol's poor efforts last year they'll premote the winning single a bit differently this year which will see for a #1 single by the winner. So There you have the next 2 months of #1 songs.

Other possabilities or songs that will come close include:

Jason Mraz which should jump to #2 this week but will just fall short of the top spot. The song is getting a bit old now and I think this weeks will be it's last chance as Kings Of Leon will be #1 the week after.

Jessica Mauboy will rise but it all depends on how she premotes this song. A few performances on Rove and Idol could see this song kick some butt, however over the next few weeks she has some stiff competition in the likes of Pink & Britney. After that I think her song will be getting old and not as popular.

Nickelback are doing well after a few days on the digitial chart but I don't think this will give them their first Oz #1. It will peak high enough but Pink & Britney will stop it from the top spot.

Katy Perry should rise into the top 3 once she has CD singles in stores but again I think she'll fall short of the top spot.

T.I. has a good chance at the top spot and condsidering he's moved into the top 20 digital chart there's only room for improvement. His CD single will be the deciding factor.

Beyonce will chart highly based on the fact it's her so this slow ballad might secure a week on top but depending on it's release date.
Soul Soung by Sugababes? anyone no what position it chartted on The top 100 singles chart or Hitseekeres chart??
Hi bulion,
Just wondering if you are able to print the ARIA Digital Chart positions 41 to 50. I'm always curious to see what is in that chart.
Thanks in advance.
As the ARIA Chart was late this week, due to the NSW public holiday on Monday, here is the next 10 downloads:

41 (35) - Love Song - Sara Bareilles
42 (Re) - The Best Thing - Hook N' Sling
43 (33) - Kansas City - Sneaky Sound System
44 (32) - Love Lockjaw - Kanye West
45 (Ne) - Kids - MGMT
46 (36) - Sweet About Me - Gabriella Cilmi
47 (42) - Burnin' Up - Jonas Brothers
48 (49) - Cookie Jar - Gym Class Heroes
49 (45) - Forgive Me - Leona Lewis
50 (41) - Take a Bow - Rihanna
There is no listing in ANY chart in the ARIA report for that Sugababes song. The only new thing charting is "Girl" (No.4 in the UK) this week.
In answer to the question above about physical and digital only singles, the following Top 50 positions this week are DIGITAL only tracks, everything else is a combination of both the physical and digital release...

No.4, 6, 13, 21, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 34, 37, 46, 50.

So 14 of this weeks Top 50 are digital only titles. Another easy way to tell what is physical and what is digital is by the catalogue number assigned on the right hand side of the chart.
If it has a really long number with 12 to 14 numbers, or an unusual or different looking cat number, then it most likely is a digital track.

You can also look at the physical singles chart, and do a cross comparison with the overall Top 100, and see what is avilable to buy and what is not.

Hope that explains it.

For "I can admit to liking a Kanye song."...just saw a couple of podcasts of the Ellen Degeneres show with Kanye West performing "Love Lockdown". It's on iTunes (show date : 10/08/08) and it's brilliant. Using African drums, it really puts the song in perspective. I'm sure it will be on YouTube soon enough.

I can't see Britney debuting inside the Top 10. Don't forget that her song was only added on thursday!
Hi Innocent Eyes,
The song was definitely added on Tuesday but if Sony BMG treat it the same way as P!nk's So What it won't debut until it has had a full week of sales. I have noticed that a lot of us including myself have been predicting a week ahead of time. So I have decided to put a Top 20 prediction that has not too much change, hopefully I'm wrong because I prefer to see an erratic chart.
I will catch you all later for the ARIA Chart show.
No predictions as yet from HappyPeople, BeansterBarnes, Innocent Eyes, Martin, BillB and Nicanat.

When logging on today, please predict which of these will be the biggest climber:

Whatever You Like - T.I.
Dance Wiv' Me - Dizzee Rascal
Burnin' Up - Jonas Brothers
Walking on a Dream - Empire of the Sun
Talk Like That - The Presets

This is the rank i would predict would be the biggest climbers:

1 Whatever you like
2 talk like that
3 burnin up
4 walking on a dream
5 burin up

I'm so glad i scored 4 this week, 2 more each week will soon get me up top
No.3 i meant Dance Wiv Me
ooh 7 right- i'm improving!

I'm gonna guess Burnin' up as fastest mover and the presets second fastest!
Looks like Ricki-Lee lives to fight another day and Britney will have to wait another week (unless Nickelback are doing the waiting!)
10 right...that's a record...(two wins in a row as well)...

Jonas Brothers or Presets
Wow, congrats to Dottie
I think the biggest climber will be Empire of the Sun only due to that fact that the album is out too and I think the single is out in the stores if not this week next week.

40 - Kids - MGMT

* Third single from the No.9 album in Australia this week, "Oracular Spectacular".

* "Time to Pretend" was their first, and they have a current Top 10 hit with "Electric Feel", which could climb again this week.
HI guys...I'm going Jonas Brothers for biggest climber.


39 down 6 from 33 - Dream Catch Me - Newton Faulkner

38 - Can't Shake it - Kate Miller-Heidke

* First ever Top 40 single for this unique Australia talent, who was nominated for several ARIA's last year, and had a Top 50 hit with the single "Words"(No.43)

* This is taken from her second album "Curiouser" which is out next week.
Sales of physical and downloads on this one, which is one of the NOVA TV Commercial themes.
I think the 1 more entry will be either:

britney spears
jack white and alicia keys
Is she someone's daughter llike Michael Gudinski???? or is that Amy Pearson
Ricki-Lee has to be next....
Kate Alexa is Michael Gudinski's daughter.
37 down 2 from 35 - Wiggle it - Ricki-Lee

She's on the list of acts to appear at the ARIA's next week, but I don't know whether she's just presenting or performing or both.
ah! knew someone was!
36 down 4 from 32 - I'm Not Over - Carolina Liar
I can't beleieve Im not over didnt make the top 20!
Its a great song - i still believe it'll be No.1 one day
35 up 2 from 37 - I Don't Care - Fall Out Boy

* The CD Single for this is out next week.

* It's taken from their forthcoming sixth album "Folie a Deux"
This reminds me of Jamelia's Beware of the Dog strangely enough!
Also a little of Christina Aguilera's fighter and a touch of some of Marilyn Manson's stuff
Is it just me!
So Bulion, Let me get this straight 3 new entries to the top 40, 3 more in the 50-41 zone and 1 re entry in the 50-41 zone?
wow congrats dottie!! set a new record!!
my guess is that t.i as biggest climber climbing 6 places
Don't they all use the same riff in the song from the sample of Depeche Mode's song "Personal Jesus"?

34 up 5 from 39 - Talk Like That - The Presets

* The boys had a re-issue of their former No.1 album "Apocalypto" this past week, and have been nominated in four catergories for the ARIA's will help.

* Nominations are for "Album of the Year", "Single of the Year", "Best Group" and "Best Dance Release".
Didn't know that. That would make sense Grogsta! Thanks
Hi guys, sorry I didn't get my predictions in... The time difference has really thrown me out today, I completely forgot
Congratulations Dottie
James, the reason Fall Out Boy sounds like Jamelia's "Beware of the Dog", is that both songs sample Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus", which Marilyn Manson did a cover also.


l!, what you said is correct. There are six new entries, three of them fall within the Top 40, then there are three more in the 41 to 50 section. Leona Lewis, Snow Patrol and Pussycat Dolls.


That's also the problem with answering questions, thanks everybody else for the P.J answer too.

33 down 6 from 27 - Keeps Gettin' Better - Christina Aguilera

* Could this single fall out of the charts BEFORE the CD Single is released, which is due week commencing October 27th. (2 weeks away).
how many equal biggest dropper are there?
I think Christina will now struggle to get another TOP 10 with 'Keeps Gettin' Better'.
32 up 6 from 38 - Burnin' Up - Jonas Brothers

* The movie "Camp Rock" was show on the Disney Channel last week, and there are plans for it to be shown on free-to-air television in early November.


Christina Aguilera and Newton Faulker are the two biggest dropping singles of the week, both down 6 places. So nothing else will drop as much Dottie.


There are three singles that climb 6 places, and one climbs more than that, so these Jonas Brothers are the first of three six place climbers.
This is so Maroon 5 when they were 13...heh heh.
Hey everyone, congratulations dottie on the record for the most correct predictions.

My prediction for the biggest climber is Empire Of The Sun - Walking On A Dream.

31 down 3 from 28 - See You Again - Miley Cyrus

* Hannah Montana-Best of Both Worlds was released on DVD this week, along with a bonus 3D edition (with the glasses)

30 down 1 from 29 - Viva La Vida - Coldplay

* The next Coldplay single is called "Lost", but Chris Martin is planning on releasing it as a multi-track EP with other unreleased album tracks, and guest appearances, possibly one from Jay-Z.

Hey BB...would rather watch VB's but neither are in front of me.
Bulion, would you tell us please what No.s 50-41 are?
The SSS track "when we were young"'s background start music sounds like a slow pace version of the spicks and specks tv theme

NEW PEAK and another "Up 6 Places" single

28 up 6 from 34 - Walking on a Dream - Empire of the Sun

* New Peak for the debut single from the Aussie duo.

duuuh Mel
26 down 4 from 22 - No Air - Jordin Sparks & Chris Brown

* Will she make it three Top 10's in a row this week. Prepare to be surprised
I'm not listening to the show today just reading this forum, what did she say bulion?

25 down 4 from 21 - Take Me on the Floor - The Veronicas

* Nominated for 4 ARIA Awards this year, "Highest Selling Album", two in the "Highest Selling Single" and "Best Pop Release". The girls are also going to present an award, and perform live too.


Mel announced No.23 instead of No.27
So Grogsta, once I post the song here, are you playing it from your computer so it feels like you're listening to the show?

You could also listen to it via the Nova websites too
Pretty good Beyonce...good to hear an RnB singer singing a straight song. No, vocal gymnastics!...although haven't reached the end yet.
24 not moving from 24 - Use Somebody - Kings of Leon

* This single stays put this week, as too does their album, at No.1 for a third week. Will their other chart entry, "Sex on Fire" climb at all this week?


Yeh, I agree with you on the new Beyonce track Chri8
23 up 3 from 26 - Poker Face - Lady GaGa

* Her album "The Fame" is stuck at No.11 for a second week.

The 'ma-ma-ma' in the background sounds like "Ma Baker" by Boney M (take a listen to it)

22 down 3 from 19 - In the Ayer - Flo Rida

* After two weeks at No.19, the ayer goes out of Flo Rida's third Top 20 single, but let's wait and see if his work on Jessica Mauboy's single will rise this week.

21 down 3 from 18 - I Kissed a Girl - Katy Perry

Will she be a riser in the hot and cold stakes
What position is the highest entry?
20 down 4 from 16 - Forever - Chris Brown

Josh, Rebecca, l!, James and Nicanat got this one right
THIRD OF THREE 6 Place climbers...

19 up 6 from 25 - Whatever You Like - T.I.

* There were three songs that all climbed six spots this week, but there is still one which has climbed more. Find out soon.

* T.I.'s album "Paper Trail" is officially out this weekend, but pre-sales have been enough for if to debut at No.30 this week.

* Two people predicted this one to be inside the Top 20, but Chri8topher was the only one to get this right


l! It's somewhere in the teens, not long now.
Not a fan of this T.I track
I just registered myself- but I changed my name from James to JMcN- just to confuse everyone (or more likely just to confuse me!!)

Wow! I feel like a new person (he he)
18 down 4 from 14 - When I Grow Up - Pussycat Dolls

* Their new single "I Hate This Part" debuts just outside the Top 40 this week.

* Only Nicanat predicted this one correctly.
I'll get you one JMcN
ahhh welcome to the clan JMcN.... You will never be the same again
I now predict Dizzee Rascal will be No.12
17 not moving from 17 - Cry for You - September

* Josh, Dottie, Qwerty and Grogsta all got this one correct.


16 - Womanizer - Britney Spears

* Lead single from her forthcoming album "Circus" which is due November 29th.

* The CD Single for this track is released November 1st.

* This track was released for download on Tuesday, so it's a great debut without a full weeks worth of downloads.

* This is her 21st Top 40 single in Australia.

* Nate, Dottie and l! all predicted this one to appear here first week.
Oh, i expected this to debut, Shame it was'nt Jack White or Nickelback
With it spending most of the week so high I'd really thought it'd get higher!
Nickelback debuted at No.23 on the download chart, but not in the Top 50 (yet)


15 not moving from 15 - This is Not My Name - Ting Tings

* Josh, James and Chri8topher got this one right
Love this song!!!
btw thankx for the welocme BB & bulion
Hello everyone!!
14 down 2 from 12 - One Step at a Time - Jordin Sparks

* It looks like Jordin was about to step into the Top 10 last week, but this week she slips down 2 places to No.14.

* Only James, sorry JMcN, predicted this one would fall down.
i'm very surprised by that

13 up 7 from 20 - Dance Wiv' Me - Dizzee Rascal

* Former UK No.1 single is the biggest climber of the week, up 7 places.

No One placed this higher than No.15 this week
This the third new song played during the countdown.

12 down 1 from 11 - 7 Things - Miley Cyrus

* Only Colin predicted this one correct. 8 people had it No.13.
Does anyone know the position of the song
"Live Your Life" by T.I feat. Rihanna??
11 up 2 from 13 - Running Back - Jessica Mauboy feat Flo Rida

* The CD Single was moved forward to this week for this track, which should crack the Top 10 next week.

* Nate, Dottie, Qwerty and James all predicted this one to be here.

No listing for Live Your Life as yet
10 not moving from 10 for a second week - Closer - Ne-Yo

* Next single "Miss Indepedent" is due out the second week of November.

* NO ONE predicted this one to stay put another week, most people had it at No.11 or No.12.
I see why Nickelback has not been included, Roadrunner records label is part of the EMI group, so they are holding off as they did with Katy Perry's "Hot N Cold".

I am actually working hence why I can't listen to Nova but can read this forum bulion, otherwise I would be listening.
I follow the forum & play the chart off my computer.... it's better with no adds and jiberish from Jabba.
Actually, Roadrunner is part of Warner Records, but like EMI, they too hold things back a bit
9 down 1 from 8 - Disturbia - Rihanna

* 7 out of 15 people predicted this one correctly, but NO ONE got the next one spot-on
You are right bulion I only got the info from Wikipedia, but even more the reason it has not been included in the main chart if their distributor is Warner.
8 down 1 from 7 - Shake it - Metro Station

* 11 out of 15 people put this at No.7, one person at No.9, but no one said No.8.


7 up 2 from 9 - Electric Feel - MGMT

* We heard their new single "Kids" debut at No.40, and now "Electric Feel" gains a new peak of No.7.

* 12 out of 15 people has this at No.8, while Brandon and Anton put it at No.6, and Josh put it at No.9, but NO ONE put it No.7.
I hope MGMT will make the top 5 and Kings Of Leon get number 1
6 not moving from 6 - Hot N' Cold - Katy Perry

* After 3 weeks at No.7, Katy is now spending her second week at No.6.

* Nate, Dottie (5/10), Grogsta, James and Nicanat got this one right.

Hey guys, sorry I have missed alot of todays show. Been an interesting chart none the less.
I join and this horrible acoustic version by Katy Perry is on. She sounds really dreadful. Anyone else agree?
5 down 2 from 3 - All Summer Long - Kid Rock

* 12th week in the chart, 11th week in the Top 10, 10th week inside the Top 5 (but is it the last week in Top 5?).

* Nate, Dottie, Qwerty and James got this one right.


4 up 1 from 5 - Sex on Fire - Kings of Leon

* Have the No.1 album in the country for the third week.

* 7 out of 15 people predicted this one correctly.

Sex On Fire will be sung on Idol tonight be one of the contestants so that should help it for next weeks chart by moving up or atleast having solid downloads.

Good to see that Jason Mraz will have a new peak.
Anyone remeber when Colbie Caillat was No.1 and no-one expected it. We all thought it would be a song that was no.1 the last week, but she went from 11-1 cos of a TV promotion.
Well, today i think "Im Yours" will be No.1 with the success of Packed To the Rafters" and maybe they are tricking us thinking it'll be Pink or whatever, what do you think?
I don't think that will be the case (l!) because Colbie Calliat has physical sales to help, Jason Mraz does not. But it may happen next week for Kings of Leon as one of the Idol performers will sing that song tonight I heard.

P.S. Sorry for repeating what Jack said.

3 up 1 from 4 - I'm Yours - Jason Mraz

* This song just continues to climb. After 3 weeks at No.4, it climbs to No.3 in it's 10th week inside the Top 10. It's also the No.1 downloaded song for the third week in a row.

* 8 out of 15 people got this one right too.
2 not moving from 2 - Just Dance - Lady GaGa

* Before it went to No.1, this song spent two weeks at No.2, now it's spending it's fourth overall week at No.2.

* 7 out of 15 people put this one here too. Brandon had it placed the lowest at No.5 where it could be soon.

NUMBER 1 for a FOURTH WEEK - So What - Pink

* By spending a fourth week at No.1 with "So What", it now becomes her longest running No.1 single in this country. "Most Girls" spent 1 week at the top, "Get the Party Started" spent 2 weeks, and "Lady Marmalade" was at the top for three weeks.

* She created chart history in the UK this past week, as this single jumped from No.38 to No.1, the biggest climb to No.1 ever in the British charts.

* And by staying at No.1 again in Australia, she has helped equal the record for most week at No.1 by female performers in a calender year, 33 weeks, which was last achieved in 1973.

* 13 out of 15 people put this at No.1. James and Josh had it at No.2 in favor of Kings of Leon and Jason Mraz respectively.
